“Astrology is the complete repository of man’s psychological knowledge”

Carl Jung

Astrology, when studied from an esoteric, evolutionary and spiritual perspective, is an incredibly accurate and valuable tool that, when the teachings are personally applied, enables access to the subconscious and super- conscious mind. Our birth chart indicates our potential. It also provides accurate information as to the psychological lessons we have incarnated to identify and overcome.

Since 1987 Ashtara has used astrology as an accelerated learning tool to gain greater self-awareness. She realised that for things to change externally first she must change internally.

She learned to become aware of her self-destructive psychology and transform it. As her self-awareness increased she took personal responsibility for the way she creates her life.  She teaches her students to do the same.

Our old way of being no longer fulfils or enriches life. When it’s time for psychological and spiritual growth, challenging situations arise in our life. They provide the opportunity for us to learn about ourselves. This inner journey requires the development of self-awareness and the willingness to take personal responsibility for all we think, feel and create. This inner revolution occurs according to cosmic timing. It’s dependent upon the specific relationship of celestial bodies to each other, and the effect of their energetic force field on individuals, and the collective consciousness. Ageless Wisdom identifies and defines this cosmic system and provides information as to how best to manage it.

Ashtara began teaching her perspective on astrology in 1992. Since then she’s written many articles and books on the subject.

Her classes and workshops are enlightening, fun, purposeful and filled with insights. Each one is designed to assist students raise their levels of self-awareness.

To aid student’s personal and spiritual development Ashtara wrote three astrology books titled Your Recipe for Empowerment through Spiritual Astrology. These three books, Volumes One, Two and Three, guide students to work with their birth chart to gain greater self-awareness. These simply written books are accelerated learning tools. Students who cannot attend classes also regard them highly. They need to be studied and the teachings applied to daily life.  They contain valuable information; stories to demonstrate the written concepts, and exercises to help students integrate the teachings.

“I started studying your book and my chart in earnest a few days ago, and I just wanted to let you know that the effect has been immediate! I’ve barely started and yet I can feel movement already in my heart, mind and soul, beyond that which I have experienced before in my (this) life/spiritual journey and this is because of your guidance through your words and teaching.

I feel such a magnetic pull to your words and teachings that I can hardly describe, and I sincerely hope that I can continue my studies in spiritual astrology with you, as far as it will take me in this life.

Thank you, Ashtara, with much love.”

Belinda Burman

Some esoteric principles govern her understanding and are:

  • We humans are, in essence, divine
  • We are each a fragment of the Universal Mind, the Mind of God.
  • We have a lower and higher nature.
  • Our higher nature is that of spirit. When realization and acceptance of the magnificence of our higher nature occurs, life changes. We can no longer operate unconsciously, robotically replaying the same old fear-based psychological games. We begin to function as a soul.

Ashtara, Thank you for an up-close, personal and revealing journey through your classes.  I am eternally grateful”.


“What a fabulous workshop – thought it was perfectly presented in a fun way (Ashtara style) – a reminder that we often take life too seriously- absolutely loved your way of combining astrology with acting and a sense of humour – it really moved things along”

Nuria Breier

“Ashtara, thank you so much for yet another fabulous workshop. I came away with a much deeper understanding of how I can use astrology as a tool to deepen my self-awareness and to make the right choices to create health and harmony in my life. By the end of the day I felt very peaceful, joyful and energized!! Thank you!”

Age of Leo - A Dimensional Shattering -10,800 - 8640 B.C. Age of Aquarius. - A Reality Shift In the 1990’s there was talk about a dimensional shattering to occur either during the year 2000 or 2012. I didn’t understand what that meant. You remember those strange times and the fear that was rampant in the lead up to the year 2000. Many people around the globe headed to the hills to escape whatever they feared. Nothing happened! Now in the 2020 decade there is talk and evidence of a reality/dimensional shift. I feel dimensional shattering and a dimensional reality...

The human spiritual evolutionary pace is accelerating! There's to be no more sitting on the fence, or remaining indecisive and apathetic. You are either on board the consciousness train or not. If not, there will be plenty of lifetimes for you to board it. As the Record Keepers say, it may take another millennium for all people on earth to wake up. It is as it is. They also mention the words: reaction or response. Reaction comes from being ignorant of unconscious and suppressed emotions and the thoughts that preceded them.  Response is considered - implying personal responsibility is being...

"The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honours the servant and has forgotten the gift" Albert Einstein I appreciate this quote because it speaks simply of a major problem facing our world today. The rational mind is a left-brain function whereas the intuitive mind is a right brain function.The rational mind is conditioned since birth to be and act as parents and as society dictates. This mental function produces robotic servants. Intuition connects with the right brain that is able to understand broader and wider concepts than...

The Role of Victim The role of unconscious victim is one millions of people play. Victim consciousness emerges through the lower vibrations of the Pisces/Neptune archetypes.  Mental, emotional or  physical suffering is one manifestation. We do not need to suffer. Pisces is a water sign and rules emotions, often those deeply suppressed. Victim status can arise because of unconscious deeply buried and suppressed emotions. Self-awareness that comes through self-realisation is the key to self-healing. Yesterday, 4th November 2023, transiting Saturn at 0 degrees Pisces moved into direct motion following a retrograde period from 17th June 2023.  During this retrograde period many people...

The Cycle of Neptune, Lord of the Sea and Master of Illusion Let us begin with a quote from the best book on Neptune I have ever read. The Book of Neptune by Steven Forrest. He asks: What is astrology? It is basically the notion that the structure of human consciousness and the structure of the heavens mirror each other - that they are built around the same laws, organised around the same principles, and that we can understand the logic of the mind by observing the form of the solar system:  i.e. in simple words: the familiar Hermetic formula...

The Cycle of Chiron around the Sun Chiron’s cycle has an elliptical orbit of approximately 50 years around the Sun. People who are close to their 50th birthday will experience a Chiron return to it’s placement in their birth chart. Chiron's transit to a birth place position can last for 2 -3 years. Those who are pre-programmed by their soul to “wake-up” often do so at a Chiron return. The process may not be pleasant. Old psychological wounds, not only from this life-time, but from life times in other existences can arise, through dreams and deep-seated emotional feelings. Some may...
